Women in leadership: Making it to the top
Many women aspire to be leaders but find their self-doubt prevents them from fulfilling their potential. In turn, many organisations focus on developing leaders from within but overlook the talents displayed by the women they employ, thereby missing a vital opportunity to expand their leadership capacity. Rutherford Business Institute is holding a one-day workshop in March 2016 where Dr Maree Roche will help women identify and overcome the barriers that prevent them from becoming effective leaders and assist them with planning their route to the top.
Rutherford’s CEO Wendy Oliver says that Roche has a wide range of experience in leadership facilitation, coaching and consulting projects and skills, and currently lectures at Waikato University. She says workshop participants will gain an understanding of the complex issues facing professional leaders, increase their own self-awareness, clarify their own goals and develop the psychological assets required to sustain their role as a leader.
The workshop is designed for women who hold executive positions in the corporate or not-for-profit sectors or who are entrepreneurs and/or business owners along with those who want to contribute more effectively to the success of their organisation and identify ways of capturing better opportunities. It is also for women who are keen to make their way to the top and those returning to the workforce.
